Propane retailers adjust to change in 2020

The state of the U.S. propane industry in 2020 can be measured in part by the strength of COVID-19’s grip on the nation and the world.

As the year drew to a close, the global pandemic had yet to loosen its grip, as health officials warned of a challenging winter ahead despite positive reports from the medical community about progress on a vaccine.

For the most part, positivity has permeated the propane industry since President Donald Trump declared a national emergency in March. The federal government deemed the delivery of propane and other fuels an essential service, and the industry went to work for its customers.
